One of my local arty acquaintances, Ruth Singer, has been shortlisted for The Haymarket Shopping Centre ‘Big Idea’. Ruth is a local Textile Artist who I met when I worked at Embrace Arts (and who delivered a sell-out Fabric Flowers workshop for our programme!). Ruth also introduced me to foraging in the local Victorian rubbish-tip, and kindly donated a spare ticket to the Open 23preview evening (thanks once again for that!).
Ruth’s shortlisted idea for the ‘Big Idea’ is to set up a sewing and craft workshop in Leicester. Please view the video on YouTube and LIKE underneath it:
There are four shortlisted ideas and it would be great make Ruth’s the winner and get everyone sewing!

In other news I am slowly whirring into action in the studio and hoping for a frantic period of painting productivity to end the year (the aim is to finish at least three unfinished canvases!).
